It’s time for it to go, I have had this monster laptop (lap crusher) since February 2007 and it still looks brand new. I’m putting it on eBay and hope it gets a good home. I spent the better part of yesterday rebuilding it back to Windows Vista x64 Ultimate. Why Vista you ask? Because HP, while I love their equipment is horrid at driver updates when a new OS comes out. This machine got zero Windows 7 love from HP so a few functions didn’t work when you ran Windows 7 on it, like the eject button, the bass and treble etc…
Either way, Windows Vista ran perfect on this machine for 2 years before I installed Windows 7 on it so I have no problem restoring this version to it. It’s almost like a portable TV, 20” higher than 1080p resolution, one of the last to use WUXGA and the screen is simply stunning to see.
So, bye bye to the best computer I have ever used, may you serve somebody else as well as you served me.
For some perspective on this machines sheer size.
